I just deleted 100+ GB of cached data from PhpStorm's cache directory. I realize that PhpStorm intentionally has no limit on the cache size, so I'm mostly curious; has anyone ever seen the cache get this big? Any ideas on how this much data built up?
I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.5 and PhpStorm 4.0.3. I've had PhpStorm installed for about two years and this is the first time I've cleaned the cache. I've used PhpStorm with 5-10 projects, each around a few hundred megabytes. After clearing the cache and restarting PhpStorm, the cache is at 95MB (a much more reasonable size).
